Sean,

I would think you would be able to use -varsoc- for each cross-section to
find the optimal lag length.

Below, is an example where -varsoc- is used to determine the optimal lag
length for each county and then these values are fed into -levinlin-.

Hope this helps,
Scott

use http://fmwww.bc.edu/ec-p/data/hayashi/sheston91.dta,clear
qui {
keep if country < 13
preserve
levels country, local(levels)
foreach l of local levels {
varsoc rgdp if country == `l'
matrix A = r(stats)
if `l' > 1 {
matrix C = C \ A
}
else {
matrix C = A
}
}
svmat C, name(col)
keep if HQ < .

egen id = fill(1 1 1 1 1 2 2 2 2 2)

egen minh = min(H), by(id)
gen optimal_lag = lag if minh == HQ

sort id opt
forv i = 1(5)60 {
local lag = opt[`i']
local opt_lag "`opt_lag' `" "' `lag'"
}

restore
}
levinlin rgdp, lag(`opt_lag')
